PHAM DUY / FOLK SONGS OF VIET NAM


vietnamFW31303Vietnam’s musical heritage is so rich and diverse that each region- North, Central, and South- produces a unique music of its own. As the liner notes indicate, “no song repeats in any two regions of Viet Nam.” The album presents traditional folk songs from each region, showcasing the music that singer Pham Duy discovered. The songs are sung by professional vocalists, each representing their native region of Vietnam.

1968年録音〜男性作曲家ファム・ドゥイが女性歌手達とともに、ベトナム各地の民謡を編曲しギター伴奏で聞かせるアルバムです。当時、こうした作の北米でのリリースは、ベトナム戦争下の反戦ソングの意味合いもあったことでしょう。
